John Ryden: Tottenham stalwart of the 1950s

As the captain of Tottenham Hotspur for much of one campaign in the late 1950s, John Ryden was within touching distance of footballing immortality – but it passed him by. Soon Bill Nicholson took over from Jimmy Anderson as manager of the north Londoners, and the new manager rated Ryden as no more than an ordinary centre-half.
